School Community Council

School Community Councils are comprised of elected parents and/or guardians whose children attend the school, elected employee representatives, and the school principal. As directed by state law, School Community Councils (SCC) review achievement data, help identify academic needs, provide input on school improvement plans, and assist in evaluating the success of the plans.  

The SCC is also responsible for determining how the LAND Trust funds are used in our school.  When Utah was granted Statehood, parcels of land were placed in a perpetual Trust with the children of Utah as beneficiaries.  Revenues from these lands go into the Permanent State School Fund. The dividends and interest of that fund are distributed annually to each public school in Utah.  Our school received $33,120.14 during the 2014-15 school year.

Serving on the School Community Council is an excellent way to be part of school improvement and supporting your child's educational experience.  Each fall parents and teachers are invited to submit a Declaraton of Candidacy to serve on the SCC.  Candidacy forms are available each fall in the front office of the school, with online registration materials and on the school website. Elections are held each year at Back to School Night.
